if you look at it a MOA crawler will out proform a shaft driven one.

yeah I know the whole "a driver with better skills can beat a MOA wirh a shafty" just throw that away for this.

take 2 crawlers set up the same (or as the same as you can get) the MOA will crawl better than the shaft driven.

I have both, and my berg outcrawls my shafty.

anyhow I was just wondering.

could someone post the thread link please.

thanks

I do believe it is what a driver is comfortable with.
Take Austin Dunn for example.He has run both types and I am way more scared of him with a shafty than when he was running a berg.
A shaft rig can beat a MOA the second you think one cain't is when someone will hand you your butt with one

Well I guess you found your crutch and should stick with it.

I, personally see no reason to separate the shafties from the MOA's.

If you want to run a class without MOA, run scale or 1.9 comp.

I just love it when a guy buys a MOA because he thinks it's an advantage and then gets beat by a shaftie or better yet shafies that just makes my day how embarrassing.

There has been a few times this year I would have killed to have my shafty . The OCM/Berg are a beast but a shafty will shine on courses the OCM/Berg hate . Just looks at the mix of rigs in the top 5 at Nationals .
3 OCM/Bergs
1 TLT ( WHAT , WHAT IS THAT ? ) shafty maybe :-P
1 Axial ( what another shafty )

i dont think the spred of competion is that far apart. once something else comes out that is over the top it should be slpit but far a moa vs shafty its more of a challenge to beat the berg which is good to have ... everyone likes a challenge sometimes. if not get a bergg

The berg has an easier time climbing the impossible lines, so it's a great rig to show off to your friends about how it can do this instead of being fast or whatever, but a shafty is typically more consistent.
